One may find this difficult to believe, but Lake City High School boys basketball coach Jim Winger took his team's non-league game Saturday night against winless Lakeland as seriously as he had the league opener the night before. His pregame speech wasn't Vince Lombardi, but Winger cautioned his team not to come out flat.
After one week of Frontier League basketball, Cheney's girls appear primed for a repeat performance. Anna Getz had 15 rebounds and eight assists Saturday as the defending champion Blackhawks (2-0, 8-2) earned a 55-44 win over visiting East Valley (1-1, 4-4), which figures to be one of Cheney's top pursuers.

Sara Schilling teamed with Conrad for second in the all-around, and Kamiakin's Jeni Gale and Karen Bird placed third all-around.
Kim Meyers and her University gymnastics team show no signs of letting up. Meyers won every event and the three-time defending champion Titans cruised to a win Thursday in a Greater Spokane League-opening three-way meet at Mead.

Nampa then closed out the game with serves CdA was unable to return.
As Pat Tyson gazed into the distance Wednesday, he saw three Ferris runners leading all of his Mead boys at the 1-mile marker. For any cross country coach, especially one of Tyson's stature, that bit of information meant one thing: an automatic Ferris win if nothing changed in the next 2 miles. One thing did change - and it wasn't Mead's long-standing domination of the Greater Spokane League.
Two North Idaho high school volleyball leagues began postseason play Tuesday while seeding for a district tournament in a third league was determined. In the Inland Empire League's A-1 Region I Tournament, top-seeded and defending state champion Sandpoint shook off some spotty play to down No. 4 Lake City 15-13, 15-10 at Sandpoint.

West Valley emitted the loudest signals during Thursday's high-powered Frontier League cross country meet at Plantes Ferry Park. WV's second-ranked boys gobbled up four of the top six positions in soundly defeating seventh-ranked East Valley and Colville. Although the third-ranked WV girls fell to top-ranked and defending State AA champion EV, the 27-28 margin was scary enough to make the Knights take note.
